Arctic Monkeys Cover Drake Hit

(Radio.com) BBC's Live 1 Radio Lounge program continues to be the most fertile spawning grounds for unlikely and wonderful covers. Previously on the show, Ellie Goulding covered Justin Timberlake, The 1975 covered One Direction, and way back in 2011 Adele covered Cheryl Cole.

Now, top-tier UK rockers Arctic Monkeys have covered Drake's icy hot "Hold On We're Going Home." The mid-tempo beat already in place on Drake's Quincy Jonesy original should be fitted for any number of rock bands to come in and give it a little more edge, but the Arctic Monkeys keep it subtle and sentimental.

Drake's new album Nothing Was The Same, featuring some amazing artwork, is out September 24 and the Arctic Monkeys' fifth studio album AM is out now. Listen to the cover here.
